Excellent Historian & Engaging Storyteller
Margarita_B, Sep 2023
Bonnie is an incredible historian and storyteller. She is knowledgeable in all things Savannah, answering all questions in a relatable entertaining manner. The three hour tour flew by. I learned so much. It was a thorough, thoughtful tour, not a cliff notes rattling off of bullet points you get on some other tours. 18 years of Savannah tour guide experience shows.
Amazing true history tour!!!
Ramia_M, Aug 2023
Bonnie was very knowledgeable and made the tour very informative not only historically but also current events. We had an amazing time and took a break at a fantastic bistro for an excellent ice tea and cup of coffee. I would highly recommend this tour.
Great experience with a very knowledgeable guide

Keith_R, Jul 2022
My wife and I enjoyed the tour, our guide Bonnie was very knowledgeable on the history of Savannah. She shared some political views on current issues that could have been left out, but may have included been due to the other guests in our party. We still highly recommend this tour.
Would recommend!

Great tour, Bonnie was very knowledgeable. We really liked the Cafe we stopped at, even went back. Would highly recommend.
Excellent Tour!
Karla_H, Jun 2021
Bonnie is an amazing guide! She has an excellent knowledge of Savannah’s history and shared it with a great sense of humor to keep it interesting. We are from Florida, so we are accustomed to the heat/humidity. However, we certainly appreciated Bonnie’s sensitivity to keeping us on the shady side of the street as we meandered through downtown. I definitely recommend this tour!!!
Time Well Spent

Giuliana_M, Apr 2021
Bonnie is very knowledgeable about Savannah. It was a great experience. Would recommend for anyone interested in history.
An informative and thoroughly enjoyable tour of Savannah
Greer_D, Feb 2021
We had a lovely amble around Savannah with Bonnie. We wanted to learn as much as we could about Savannah in the little time allowed to us and Bonnie did not disappoint. As Bonnie walked us around the historic district she told us how and why Savannah was settled and also who settled the city. She took breathed life into the history of Savannah by showing us important sites and statues of those without whom Savannah would not exist. The mid tour stop at the coffee shop in leafy square was enjoyed by all. Bonnie is not just knowledgeable about historical events, but current ones too. I highly recommend her and her tour.
Great tour
Weldon_S, Sep 2020
This was a very good tour! Three hours of information and sites! The guide is very knowledgeable about the city and the history. She did a great job. Pick this tour!
Thorough and enjoyable tour
Suzette_B, Aug 2020
Bonnie was a wonderful tour guide- very knowledgeable and personable. The tour covers quite a bit of area but the slower pace made it easier to walk in the heat . I would highly recommend both Bonnie and the tour .
